    For upcoming students allow yourself to learn as much as possible in high school. At Francis Marion your freshman year will be a good transition from high school to college. They make sure it is smooth and give you a semester to adjust to the new style of learning. Do not slack on or think that this is like high school because you will be disappointed in your results.

    Make sure to consider everything you want in a college while researching them. If you want to go to a tiny school that feels very similar to college then Francis Marion is right for you. Get the point of view from people who like it and people who don't.

    My tips are to watch the crowd you hang around in college. This will and could have a major effect on how much you study or get crucial sleep. Trust me, in the beginning of my first semester, I hung out more than studying and it had an horrible effect on my grades. So I stopped hanging with the people who were driving my focus away from the purpose of being at school and have succeeded every since.

    Look at other schools before deciding on FMU. While the academics and price are alluring, the location and social life in Florence are rather dull. Also, don't think that just because FMU admits a lot of students, that the academics are easy. The phrase you'll most commonly hear about FMU is easy to get in, hard to get out.

    Since there's not a whole lot to do on campus, there is a lot of partying. Be careful! Even though it's college, underage drinking is really cracked down on if you're on campus (and it's illegal.) If you're not into partying though, there are a lot of people who don't go out who you can hang out with.
